FO: Thora Socks by Rachel Coopey, aka the Christmas Explosion socks
I finished them on Boxing Day just as a big storm hit our small corner of the world.
Pattern: Thora from A Knitted Sock Society by Rachel Coopey
Yarn: Knitting Goddess 4 ply sock yarn, 75% superwash merino, 25% nylon, in the colourway Jolly Holly
This is one of those compulsive patterns which lures you forward into knitting just one more section until suddenly you realise you have finished a pair of socks :)
I really enjoyed the yarn too - the crazy pooling adds to the character of these socks. It is much softer than I expected from a 75/25 mix - a seriously good workhorse sock yarn that comes in a remarkable range of colours. (And there is a 20% off sale on right now... just saying!)
I wanted a pair of cheerful Christmas socks and that is definitely what I got!
I am very happy :)
